About george gaffga

I am a retired Presbyterian pastor living in Colorado. My wife, Gigi and I are married 46 years. As an ordinary guy my life has been graced by God in many ways. My wife and I have three grown children and five grandchildren. I am trying to live with Christ day to day and though I sometimes fail miserably I am not giving up because God hasn't given up on me. I volunteer in a local library and lead worship at Life Care Center nearby. I play some guitar, write music and have written a couple of devotional books that were best sellers in my local church. So journey with me in these writings and let's see what this life with Jesus is all about. I am working on a new book currently.

BUT WHAT ABOUT REPENTANCE AND FAITH?

So a good friend remarked to me some time ago, ‘If Christian Universalism is TRUE then what about repentance and faith?’ At first it sounded to me like, ‘doesn’t something have to be required to get in on this good … Continue reading

ONLY SOME ARE ELECT? I DON’T THINK SO.

Calvinism is a doctrine that evolved from John Calvin’s work in the Reformation. A most important part of that teaching is the idea that Christ died only for the elect- those chosen by God even before creation to be saved … Continue reading
